Description

Copper motorcycle weathevane measurements

This pure copper motorcycle weathervane really is a work of art. It features excellent intricate detail including the handlebars, headlamp, mudguards, engine, seat, fuel tank, spoked wheels and disc brakes. The detailing all help to give the motorbike a realistic look and the piece creates an amazing functional outdoor feature

The motorcycle turns as the wind blows to show the direction the wind is blowing. This item could also be classed as a motorbike, moped or chopper. We were surprised to find that the first motorcycle with an internal combustion engine was the Daimler Reitwagen invented in 1885. There have been many types of motorcycles invented over the preceding decades and famous manufacturers such as Harley Davidson, Ducati, BMW, Aprilia, Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki and Suzuki have produced some great examples

Standard Bracket

Each weathervane is supplied with a standard 125mm (5 inch) eaves bracket. Other brackets and fixings are available (see Brackets & Fixings tab for more details)

Features

• Easy to assemble and install (including step by step instructions)

• Includes everything you need to construct the weathervane: Steel rod, NSEW directionals, copper globes and weathervane figure

• Exclusive Single Point Contact design allows the weathervane to spin freely in the wind

Construction

Copper: The weathervane designs are handcrafted from pure copper and brazed. Brazing may be visible on some designs but doesn't tend to lessen the beauty of the lovely copper weathervane design. Globes and spacers are also made from pure copper, copper over time naturally ages to a Verdigris patina. To preserve the polished finish a lacquer spray can be used to delay the onset of the natural patina

Brass: Cast brass is used for the NSEW cardinal points on the range of copper weathervanes

Steel: Rods and brackets to mount the copper weathervanes are made from steel. The steel is treated with a durable exterior black powdercoat paint. The finish should be good for a reasonable amount of time out in the elements but in time if the steel rods and brackets weather they can be painted with an exterior metal paint such as Hammerite which restores the finish and will help preserve and extend the life of the fittings. Clear mastic can also be used on any joints for example where the rod is inserted and secured into the bracket to seal and further weatherproof and prolong the life of the steel bracket and rod
